Tinley Park-based MACK Companies announced that 10 new construction townhomes are ready for immediate delivery at Fay's Point, a 27-acre marina community in Blue Island, Ill. Five two-bedroom and five three-bedroom, two-story townhomes are available for sale, with prices ranging from $204,900 to $249,900 for 2,015 to 2,481 square feet.
“Fay’s Point really has it all, as it combines high-quality housing, a prime location and affordable pricing, which appeals to a broad number of homebuyers, particularly those looking to purchase a home before interest rates get much higher,” said Eric Workman, vice president of sales and marketing at MACK. “Single professionals and young couples will love being less than 20 miles from Chicago’s Loop, families will be drawn to the quiet marina neighborhood and empty-nesters will enjoy the laid-back lifestyle, with walking paths and boat dock right at their doorstep.”
Most of the 10 new construction townhomes enjoy waterfront views, and all include an attached two-car garage, front and rear porches, basements and energy-efficient mechanicals. Each home includes a master bedroom with a large walk-in closet and master bath with a double-bowl vanity, walk-in shower and separate bathtub. Residents will love their private rear balcony, accessible through glass sliding doors adjacent to the kitchen.
“The beautiful finishes, open design and private outdoor areas deliver high-quality living,” Workman added. “These townhomes are ideal for entertaining, so homebuyers should visit Fay’s Point now to be in their new home in time for the holidays.”
The five two-bedroom, 2½-bath townhomes range from $204,900 to $219,900 for 2,015 square feet. The five three-bedroom townhomes are 2,481 square feet with 2½- or 3½-bathroom units, and range from $234,900 to $249,900. Both two- and three-bedroom units include laminated hardwood flooring, ceramic bathroom flooring, granite counter tops and stainless appliances.
Workman added, “Although the 10 new construction townhomes are already priced at a great value, the added benefit of being an FHA-approved community puts these townhomes within payment reach to many prospective buyers who have been unable to find homes.” According to RE/MAX, home prices were up 18.6 percent in the first half of the year over the same period in 2012 in communities, like Blue Island, which are serviced by Metra Electric.
Fay’s Point is framed by the Little Calumet River and the Calumet Sag Channel, and enclosed in the natural setting of the wetland preserves. “With 1½ miles of walking paths and waterfront access, Fay’s Point residents enjoy a true urban oasis,” said Workman. “And for golf enthusiasts, having the Joe Louis Golf Course directly across the river brings added convenience to this resort-inspired community.”
Less than 20 miles south of Chicago, Fay's Point is in the early stages of development with a total of 30 existing townhomes, including the 10 new construction units available for immediate sale. The development also includes home sites for 44 new-construction townhomes, five lots capable of up to 236 new multifamily units and a marina with more than 80 boat slips. Planning for the new construction is underway, positioning this marina community to be a major destination in the thriving south Chicago suburb.
“MACK has a strong history of revitalizing south suburban communities, and Fay’s Point provides a perfect opportunity for us to further this commitment to delivering quality housing options,” said Workman. “We’re excited to deliver these townhomes for homebuyers looking for a unique, affordable and convenient lifestyle.”
Fay’s Point is located just off of I-57, at 1522 Broadway in Blue Island, with close proximity to two Metra Rail stops and just minutes from a number of major retail outlets, restaurants and entertainment.
